  3. 3. How does it work?
  4. 4. The Pen: Technical Data <ul><li>Uses ink </li></ul><ul><li>Functions just like a normal pen </li></ul><ul><li>Contains a digital camera </li></ul><ul><li>Takes pictures of pen strokes only </li></ul><ul><li>Small data files </li></ul><ul><li>Secure data transfer </li></ul><ul><li>Bluetooth or USB </li></ul>Ink Cartridge and force sensor Battery Encrypted data transmission 128/256 bit Bluetooth transceiver/USB Processor InfraredCamera Memory : 50 A4 Pgs
  5. 5. The Paper <ul><li>Small dots printed on ordinary paper </li></ul><ul><li>Images and text can be overprinted </li></ul><ul><li>Visually a slight grey tone on the paper </li></ul><ul><li>Non complex printing process – Laser/Litho/Digital </li></ul><ul><li>The pixels have an addressing system from Anoto </li></ul>1.8 mm 1.8 mm
  6. 6. The Paper <ul><li>When using a digital pen, a tiny camera in the pen registers the pen's movement across the grid surface on the paper and stores it as series of map coordinates. These coordinates correspond to the exact location of the page you’re writing on. </li></ul><ul><li>How does it register the coordinates? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The paper consists of an ordinary paper of any size provided </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>with a dot pattern, invisible to the eye that is either pre-printed </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>or printed on a laser printer . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The displacement of the dots (0.1 millimeters in size) from the relative position enables them to be programmed and tell the pen the exact location on the page. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Enablement of the Form Your Form + Anoto Dot Pattern = Enabled Form
  8. 8. Form Printing and Completion Form Printing The Forms are printed on standard office laser printers and can be Digital or Litho printed by printing companies. The client receives a post-script file after their form has been enabled and can print on demand or in bulk by an Anoto authorised printer. Form Completion The user fills out the form with the digital pen that contains normal ink (available in 7 different colours with refill ink cartridges). As the user writes, a tiny camera in the digital pen registers its movement across the surface of the paper printed with the dot pattern enabled with Anoto functionality. This creates a digital image of exactly what is written with each pen stroke, time and date-stamped. camera

  12. 12. Hand Writing Character Recognition (HCR) Monogram – word could be fire or five Bigram – 2-word group could be on fire or on five Trigram – 3-word group could be on fire but never on five <ul><li>The “Text” resource uses a trigram model. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Hand Writing Character Recognition (HCR) <ul><li>Handwriting recognition software enables computer systems to convert characters, words and more generally text written by hand into digital characters or digital text. </li></ul><ul><li>Application uses Vision Objects handwriting recognition software which is the world leader in this field. 26 language handwriting packs are currently available. </li></ul><ul><li>The result is a set of points ordered by time, speed, accelerations, time order of strokes, writer ID. </li></ul><ul><li>Hand Writing Recognition (HWR) far better than Optical Character Recognition (OCR) </li></ul><ul><li>Teach the application to learn the users handwriting </li></ul><ul><li>Accuracy improved by using lexicons </li></ul><ul><ul><li>User names </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Place names </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Street names </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Automatic Data verification </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ID Numbers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fieldworker Names </li></ul></ul>Host Server
  14. 14. Recap Process
  15. 15. Our Solution We design and layout the form according to your specification We add the dot pattern and programme it with handwriting recognition, validation, export and database. Printing of the Postscript file can be done by New Age, a certified printer or the client (with the required hardware and training compliance) As the user writes, a tiny camera in the pen registers its movement across the surface of the “unique dot pattern” on ordinary paper. This creates a digital image of exactly what is written with each pen stroke, time and date stamped Both mobile phones and PC’s can be used for the transfer and submission of the pen data. Mobiles must be Bluetooth enabled The mobile phone or designated PC is fitted with a router that receives the data and transmits it to a database or a receiving PC for opening The Forms processor server correlates the handwriting with the correct digital form, converts the writing to text and returns the processed information to clients in the desired format Technology Solutions

  20. 20. Security <ul><li>The digital pen communicates using end-to-end cryptography. A message written with the pen is encrypted within the pen before transmission. The message remains secret from the very moment it leaves the pen. It uses 128/256-bit symmetric key encryption </li></ul><ul><li>Each digital pen has a unique ID. All digital pens that are used by client users are registered to our servers and can only communicate with that “trusted” server. All information captured from both USB & Bluetooth pens is encrypted by the pen before uploading. Every pen contains a real time clock making fraudulent form completion easily detectable. Our servers retain all pen stroke files, original images and XML upload files. </li></ul><ul><li>Security Benefit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High security – 128/256 bit encryption </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No more missing paperwork - instant transactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Immediate proof of delivery /acceptance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Signature verification </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clear audit trail - time stamped log of pen user, time started, finished and signed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Regular Backup - ensures reporting and compliance where necessary </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Secure web gateway </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less chance of being stolen, easy to replace than PDA or laptop </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No abuse of this technology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No time wasted and impossible for any fraudulent activities to take place </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Barcode Scanning <ul><li>The pen must be held in a specific angle when scanning a barcode </li></ul><ul><li>The barcode must be scanned with normal hand movement avoiding extremely high or low speeds </li></ul>
